Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans as well as fundraising.

The P&C meets twice a term, on Monday nights (generally) during weeks 3 and 8. The meetings are held in the staffroom and online via Zoom from 7.30pm. Zoom details can be found on the school calendar in the Sentral Parent App (click on the meeting date) OR email the P&C at for the link. 

All are welcome to attend the meetings. If you would like to be a voting member of the P&C, complete the registration form and pay a $5 membership fee (yearly) to the P&C executive. This can be done either via bank deposit (details are on the form) or at the beginning of the meeting. Voting rights will begin at the following meeting.
